March Musings

By On March 30, 2016
Another month has flown by. Where does the time go? April is on it's way, and I am so ready for those days where it doesn't get dark until 8:30. I don't know why, I just am. And I want to have a semi-long intro. Just because.  :P


Since it seems to be trending in the blogosphere, I'm starting monthly recaps. *yay*


(For the record, my March didn't look much like this.)


Anyways, this month's highlights.


Top Quotes

So this section is supposed to be for book quotes but I didn't really find any good ones this month. :( But here's some picture quotes I came across which I found interesting and/or amusing.



Doesn't this one just look like a writing prompt?

Interesting AND/OR amusing, remember? Well here's where amusing slides in.

(My personal favorite)

Bloggerly News

I got my 2500th hit this month! *cue confetti* Thanks, guys! :)

Also, I reached 25 followers! Well done my ninjas. Keep spreading the word so others can find our hideaway and be trained in the arts of warfare. *insert ninja face*

But seriously, you guys are awesome. :)

But my contact page is gone also. :( I decided to take it down since it didn't work.

To make up for it, I HAVE ANOTHER NEW PAGE (in the works)!!! *cheering* So I accidentally made my blog list invisible. Let's just say this is my new opinion of your blog hotmail.




NO MATTER WHAT GOOGLE TELLS YOU DON'T MESS WITH IT UNLESS YA KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING.

And apparently, I don't. :P

But the blog list vanishing is actually okay, because it was antiquated anyways. So now I'm doing a new page for blogs. I'm trying to figure out how to get the buttons onto a page, so if ya know how, let me know. :D

Also, promptly after mentioning I know how to do a favicon, I ATTEMPTED TO DO A FAVICON. I can't see it, so if you can, hooray. Tell me so I can stop pulling my hair out. :)


Word Count

WIP:
So most of you probably know Go Teen Writers had their 300 for 30 challenge this month, and I'm pleased to announce my results:

15,211 words. (ok, I missed two days. only two though :D)

Other Random Projects You May or May Not Hear About:

5,064 words.

Total:

20,275 words. Which I am very pleased with. :D This month I'm in Camp Nano, and my goal is 25k words, so I'm hopeful! :-)

A VERY SPECIAL SURPRISE

So. We're gonna try to keep this dignified, kay?

*folds hands primly*

Ahem.

Ahem.

OKAY CHUCK DIGNITY TO THE WOLVES. WHO CARES ABOUT IT ANYWAYS?? :P

So my awesome friend Sophie (IT TURNED BLUE. *happy dance*) has started HER VERY OWN WRITING BLOG. EEK I KNOW, RIGHT?

So I expect to see ALL OF YOUR FACES ON HER FOLLOWERS LIST TODAY OR TOMMOROW. Or the next day. Depending on when you read this post. ALL OF YOU. Or else I may be forced to hypnotize you (over the internet. IT'S TOTALLY POSSIBLE) and make you. For your own good. :P

Tune in next time for a VERY VERY SPECIAL April Fool's Day post. 0_0

An Update and a (very short) Story

By On March 25, 2016
Hi everyone! :-D I'm back (by popular demand).

Okay maybe not.


Either way, I did survive the blizzard on Wednesday (yes Colorodoans get blizzards in early spring) despite the fact that our electricity went out for about six hours and we had to live off the grill.

Not kidding. We had grilled salmon, which was going to be accompanied by grilled pound cake (it was in the oven when the electricity went out), but the grill didn't seem to be working very well by then. *shrugs*

So yeah if anyone was wondering where we were on Wednesday, we were hunkered down grilling pound cake and playing cards by the candlelight. :P And getting wax everywhere, of course. And did I mention the thing about exorbitant amounts of firewood? :)

Anyhow since it was so dark and there really wasn't much to do after we were tired of cards, I photo opped.

So yeah here are some of my results:




Yeah you're right. This one isn't very good.


If you're wondering what this has to do with reading or writing, THEN GOOD JOB YOU HAVE LEARNED WELL. :D I'm getting to that.


Today I have a short story I wrote for a contest on the writer's forum I'm on. It's entitled "A Lantern in the Dark." So the pics kinda go with it. It's nothing perfect, but they kinda do.

It was based off the prompt "Friends shine the brightest when the shadows pour in." My stories tend to focus on theme more than plot, just so you know. :)

Here it is.


I’m alone.

Alone in an empty field, alone to face the opening skies.

Alone forever.

I take a step forwards, hesitantly. I’m drowning in the rain, drowning in my guilt. I betrayed them all, and in turn, have been betrayed.

It’s the way life works.

The sky’s hatred pushes my waist length hair off my face as I tilt my head upward. The water pounds on my closed eyelids, as if knocking on a door. The pressure becomes more than I can bear, and I look back down at the ground.

My eyes open.

There’s something bright, something clear, shining through the rain. I squint my eyes and peer through the fog and mist, straining to catch just one more glimpse of the light. There it is! It bobs up and down, like a firefly in the night, scattering shadows with every bound.

It calls to my weary heart, beckoning me to draw closer. I stumble forwards as the rain takes on a diagonal sleet. My feet slip on the marshy ground, and I fall down. I struggle to climb up again, frantic as the light moves.

But now, the wind picks up and tosses me backwards. I land on my back with a yell, and my ankle twists beneath me.

I try to stand again, but my ankle gives way, and I scream. I collapse into the marsh, laying still, my will to live gone. Water pools around me, and I realize if I don’t move, I’ll drown.

I don’t move.

This is what traitors deserve. A bleak, lonely, cold death is better than a tortured existence.

Suddenly, I’m blinded by a flash of brilliance in my peripheral vision. My eyes pulse, and I snap them shut. I turn my head away.

I hear a soft, squishing sound as footsteps tread over the marshy ground. One step, two steps, three steps. They draw closer, and the faintest trace of something warm tingles on my skin.

My eyes open again, this time looking upward.

A face I know well stares back at me, and I gasp, shrinking back into the mud. No. I deserve to die.

The cloaked figure holds a gnarled stick with a lantern bobbing on the end, and he unwraps his cloak, shoving the stick into the ground. He bends over, lifting me up and wrapping the cloak around my convulsing body.

After all I’d done to him and his family, he still stood by me no matter what.

I choke, my eyes filling with tears. “I was ready to die after what I’d done. Why did you come for me?”

He throws his arm around my shoulder, helping me walk. “That’s what friends are for.” A smile crosses his face, and his drenched, tousled hair whips in the wind.

I shake my head as the wind begins to die down. “I didn’t do this for you.”

He leans close, and whispers in my ear. “Friendship isn’t about perfection. It’s about loving each other, no matter what.” I stumble, and he lifts me in his arms. “Come on. Let’s go home.”

I didn’t think I could face the ones I betrayed before. But now, with him at my side, I know I can.

And I know I will.

The lantern light bobs, and I reach out to touch it. My frozen hands are warmed by its light, a light the rains of a thousand thunderstorms could never put out.


In other bloggerly news, I was messing around with my blog hotmail, and somehow *clears throat* my blog list vanished in a plume of smoke (okay the smoke might not have been there). Huh. *scratches head* IT IS JUST GAWN.

I DIDN'T MEAN TO THOUGH.

No kidding, I can see it on my blogger layout screen thing, but it's not on my sidebar. I think I may have accidentally deleted the hotmail code for it. But I'm planning on doing a separate page for other blogs soon. So you can look for that in the near future. :D



AND YES IF YOU DIDN'T NOTICE I HAVE A REALLY PROFFESSIONAL NEW PAGE CALLED CONTACT ME. (that's sorta why I was messing with the blog hotmail)

But.... yeah that's pretty much all that's professional about it. It took me a few hours to figure out how to get it to work like that, AND NOW I DON'T RECEIVE THE MESSAGES IF SOMEONE TRIES TO CONTACT ME. *sighs*  I literally tried about twelve times. But I also realized it wasn't working before, either. So... if you've filled it out before for some reason and I haven't replied, now you know why. :) I should probably take it off... but it took me forever to get on. So I'm a little torn.



Now talk to me, minions! :) Did anyone else get snow? Have you been writing any short stories recently? Have you been suffering from the woes of technology? *melodramatic moan* HAVE YOU ATTEMPTED TO CONTACT ME AND THOUGHT I WAS IGNORING YOU? (perish the thought!) Speak now or forever hold your peace! :P And is anyone else gearing up for Camp Nano? (this is my first year, so my preparation consist mostly of jumping up and down in excitement. :P)

Fishing for Lit: Light of the Last

By On March 19, 2016
So I've been meaning to do book reviews here pretty frequently but... yeah I think I got a little distracted. 11 posts, and not one book review. So DISCLAIMER: you'll probably be seeing book reviews here pretty often.

Anyways, on to the review.

(NOTE: Although this is book three of the series, there are really no spoilers. So you can feel safe reading this. :)

I know. The word "the" is on this cover. Which really threw me, cause it's not on mine. *shrugs* I like it better as just Light of the Last anyways.


Light of the Last by Chuck Black

  • From the back cover
After an accident left him temporarily blind, Drew Carter didn't just regain his sight. He now sees what others can't imagine- an entire spiritual realm of mighty beings at war.

Forget the gift, Drew just wants his life back. Part of that involves Sydney Carlyle, a woman he is inexplicably drawn to. When he's offered the chance to become a CIA agent, it seems a way to redeem his past. The only problem- his visions of the supernatural realm are increasing in frequency.

It's up to the warrior angel Validus and his hand-picked team of heavenly agents to protect the unbelieving Drew. Validus now knows that the young man is at the epicenter of a global spiritual war, and the angels must use a millennia of battle experience to keep Drew alive, for the Fallen want him dead.

Surrounded by spiritual warriors and targeted by demons, Drew's faced with an impossible decision that will forever alter the destiny of America... and his own soul.

  • My thoughts before reading
This series got off to a really good start. The first book, Cloak of the Light, was my favorite when I first read it. But book two, Rise of the Fallen, pretty much ruined the series for me.

Basically what happens is book one ends in a cliffhanger and then book two takes the time to go over everything that happened in book one from a different character's perspective. Which probably would have been fine. I wouldn't have liked it, but I would have been okay with it.

But it was told from the perspective of an angel. I CAN'T RELATE TO YOU BRO I'M SORRY. At all. And personally, I really didn't care at all about the angel, not even after having read an entire book with him as the protagonist. I mean, he's basically an immortal being. But, I knew Drew was FINALLY BACK for book three. *cheers*

So I had mediumish expectations for this book. I didn't like book two, but, I mean, FINALLY we get to find out what happens.

And with that (very dramatic) summary, it sounds amazing, right???

But by the end of the book, I was a little disappointed. Neither book three nor book two was able to maintain the same feeling as book one.

  • My thoughts after reading
Me 250 pages in:

"WHOA that escalated quickly."

Well... this book didn't turn out to be everything I expected. First off, I was a little confused. All this CIA stuff is... well, confusing. And all of the tech language from Drew's genius friend was a little over my head. Combine that with the bio-whatever terms thrown it at the end, and you've got one confused reader. Aka, me.

Plus, the amount of guys Sydney has been involved with since book one seems a little over blown to me.

And remember how I said everything escalates quickly? It does, which made the ending seem to me rather disappointing and anti-climactic.

  • What I liked
I LOVED THE ACTION SEQUENCES. The conspiracy was well developed, but really wasn't prominent in the book. Until the end, of course. I'm telling you, it escalates at, like, the speed of light. When everything explodes into nation-wide chaos. 

  • What I didn't really like
So I was literally confused for the entire book about who the villain is, and who's shooting at who. Cause there's the possibility of terrorists, rogue CIA agents, this other really-high-up-there Muslim organization (which I think was related to the terrorists...), and the UN. I think.

So amidst all the shooting, I was kinda wondering who was shooting at Drew and why. There were a few times when it was clear (mostly at the end when things start getting CRAZY), but more when I had no idea who Drew was up against. I FINALLY figured out what the terrorist plot thingy was about, so I get some credit. :) (And I know what you're thinking. HE JUST TOLD US THERE'S A TERRORIST PLOT THAT WAS A SPOILER!!!! Fear not! It wasn't. If I had told you what the plot was, that would've been a spoiler. But this wasn't. :P)

Also, the storyline sorta just sorta meandered along (until the last 75 pages, in which everything sorta just explodes). With no recognizable villain or story goal, I was sorta left wondering exactly what Drew was trying to achieve. I mean, other than save America from destruction, of course. :P

Oh, and the anticlimactic ending was a little frustrating. Obviously. :P

  • My recommendation
I probably would have enjoyed this book a lot more if I would have had it to read directly after I finished book one (because you can probably skip book two and be fine). So I give this book 3/5 worms. :P

If you've already read the other two books in the series, by all means, read the last one. But if you haven't, then I don't really think it's worth it to read all three books. (I BLAME IT ALL ON BOOK TWO, PEOPLE. BOOK TWO!!!!!) You could maybe skip book two, though.

But it's your choice. I know people who love these books (including book two), so you may want to give them a shot. :)

Five Biographies That Will Inspire You to Live for a Purpose

By On March 14, 2016
Biographies. The stories of other's lives. Today (in this relatively short and serious post) we're discussing a few which I found particularly inspiring. We've all read a couple at some point, but here's five of my personal favorites.




1. Unbroken by Laura Hilldenbrand

This book was amazing. The details alone were enough to make my mouth drop, but the story was amazing. Unbroken tells the story of Louis Zamperini, the son of an Italian immigrant family. Louis's plans for life as a famous Olympic runner are interrupted when World War 2 strikes. Louis joins up with the Air Force, but when his plane crashes over the Pacific Ocean, he finds himself stranded at sea. Until he's rescued- by the Japanese. It's a story of resilience and redemption amidst the horrors of World War 2. But just a note, while this book does contain graphic violence and some language, it is merely an accurate representation of the facts and not gratuitous. Still, consider yourself warned!


2. Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus by Nabeel Qureshi

What happens when a devout Muslim decides to take the time to really study Christianity? This book, technically an autobiography, tells of Nabeel's journey to a relationship with Jesus Christ. It contains lots of fascinating information about the Muslim culture and what they believe. I also really liked how it shows evangelism through cultivating strong relationships, not just one time interaction (like passing out tracts), although God does definitely use that, too.


3. Bonhoeffer by Eric Metaxas

Who was Dietrich Bonhoeffer? I'm sure many of you have heard the name, but this extensive book will tell you everything you might want to know. Bonhoeffer was a Christian pastor living in World War 2 Germany. He was a pillar of resistance against the Nazi regime, and helped Jews and Christians in Germany. He sets an admirable example of unwavering faith and devotion. Here's one of Bonhoeffer's most famous quotes:
   "When Christ calls a man, he bids him come and die."


4. I Would Die for You by Brent and Deanna Higgins

This book is probably the least well-known on the list, but still totally worth the read! (Especially considering it's not very long. Less than 200 pages, I think.) I Would Die for You is about a teenage guy who contracted a disease on the mission field and died from it. Written by his parents, it contains many insights into his life, including his journal entries. This book inspired me to live my faith out in my everyday life.


5. Through My Eyes by Tim Tebow

This one's for all you football fans out there! (GO BRONCOS!!) This book tells Tim Tebow's story- from his own eyes. It details how he came to be a professional football player, and the struggles along the way. Tim Tebow is a great example of living your faith out in all aspects of your life, including sports.


So what do you guys think? Are there any I missed, or that I should read? Which of the list have you read? Does anyone have any thoughts on why we should read biographies, or shouldn't? (I was going to include that in the post, but didn't. It was completely arbitrary, so don't ask. But I'd love to hear what everyone thinks!)

The (very extensive) Get to Know Me Tag

By On March 08, 2016
I have been tagged again! :) I'm so excited that Abi tagged me to do the Get to Know Me Tag.


So ready to learn my deepest, darkest secrets??? :P

Okay, it's not that extensive. But be warned, it is pretty long! I made sure to put in plenty of pictures so as to hold your attention. ;) Ready?

Vital Stats

Name: Jonathan

Nicknames: (brace yourselves) Jonny, Jonnyboy, Jonny Appleseed, Appleseed, Apple, App (it sort of just kept getting abbreviated), Big App, Depp (after Jonny Depp *rolls eyes*) And if you randomly called out any of those, I would probably raise my head.

Place of Birth: Denver, Colorado

Firsts

Best Friends: All of my sibs

Award: Sneakiest Ninja. (Shhhhhh!) Probably a participation ribbon. But I've also received very formal- looking sheets after my music recitals that say "Certificate of Achievement" on them, so maybe that's an award.

Sport: I played soccer when I was about eight. I'm pretty good at basketball, though, since my twin plays on a team and makes me shoot hoops with him. :)


Real Holiday: Well, we went to Legoland when I was really little. Not that I remember anything about it. :):)

Concert: I attended my own piano recitals. :P But that's all I can think of at the moment.

Favorites

Film: Hmmmm... I don't really like movies because they drain my writerly creativity. Plus, I've never been very good at sitting still for long periods of time. This extrovert mind needs MORE STIMULATION. Which sitting on the couch doesn't bring. But, if I had to choose, I would probably pick Star Wars: The Force Awakens.


TV Shows: Hahahahhaha we live forty-five minutes from the nearest Wal-mart... so yeah, no TV. :)

Color: Yellow and BRIGHT blue:

Like the ground and the sky in this pic

Song: I don't listen to much music, but whenever I'm watching a movie, I enjoy the soundtrack. Especially in Les Miserables and October Baby.

Restaurant: So it used to be Salt Grass, but it changed. I know a lot of people who think Five Guys is greasy, BUT THEY HAVE THE BEST BURGERS. (and they give you a ton of fries...)

See, look at all those fries!

Books: Well, there's a page about my favorite books, but since I love books so much, here's a few more: Men of Grit Series by John J. Horn, The Sky Riders by Christopher Hopper, I Have Seen Him in the Watchfires by Cathy Gohlke, Trouble by Gary D. Schmidt, The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton (yes, it's on both lists for a reason).


Currently

Feeling: Like this. I'm about to start school.


Single or Taken: taken, people!






(JUST KIDDING JUST KIDDING I'M ONLY SIXTEEN I HOPE NO ONE HAD A HEART ATTACK!)

Eating: Nothing. But if I was eating something, I'd be eating Sour Patch.

Watching: I'm assuming this refers to TV shows, which we already dealt with. :) But if not, I'm watching my fan spin. It's quite entertaining. :P

Wearing: My amazing comfy blue pants that have horses and say Ford, and a white t-shirt. AKA, my pajamas.

Future

Want children: I want what God and my wife wants. :)

Want to be married: If God wills it.

Careers in Mind: Writer, Accountant. I work for my Dad in his tax business. I've also installed dry wall before...

Where you want to live: Ireland. Then I can get an awesome accent. :P (Not that I'll ever live there, but it's fun to imagine! :)

Do You Believe in

God: Absolutely

Miracles: Yup. If it's in the Bible, I believe it! ;)


Love at first sight: Probably not. If you think you're in love with someone when you first see them, it's probably just a childish crush you'll be over in a month.

Ghosts: Nope, but there are angels and demons.

Aliens: No.

Soul Mates: I don't believe in the whole "destined by fate" idea this term is often associated with. Nor do I believe there's only one match for everyone. So, no.

Heaven: Of course

Hell: Yes.

Kissing on the first date: THE FIRST DATE?? Good heavens, God didn't mean for us to kiss until the wedding bells ring! :P

Yourself: I believe in Christ working in me and through me. :)



Wow, that was fun!

Now for who I'm tagging:

The Spectacular Book Tag

By On March 04, 2016
I've been tagged for the first time! (Yay!) And, it's a book tag. Thanks to Rebekah for tagging me!

The Rules
1. Tag three to five people.
2. Answer the questions.

So here are the questions:

1. What are your favorite book covers? 
Whaaaaattt there are like so many, so brace yourselves.





(This one below I literally read ONLY for the cover.)


(To Kill a Mockingbird alone has a few good ones.)



(Not sure if this one is actually a cover or just a random image, but I though it was hilarious.)


Also The Homelanders Series by Andrew Klavan has some pretty cool covers. Here's the first.


2. What are your favorite book titles? 
Well, these are my favorite TITLES, not necessarily books. So here's my list:
From the Dark to the Dawn by Alicia A. Willis
The Goodbye Season by Marian Hale
Stay Where You are and Then Leave by John Boyne
Defy the Night by Heather/Lydia Munn
I Have Seen Him in the Watchfires by Cathy Gohlke
The Monster in the Hollows by Andrew Peterson (It doesn't sound that cool, or really have a nice ring to it, but when you read it it's PURE MASTERY. Hint, hint: It carries a double meaning. I will say NO MORE.)

3. Have you read a book and didn't know why they named it that and what was the title?
Hmmm... that series by Evan Angler? I think it was called the Swipe series? The titles were Swipe, Sneak, Storm, and Spark.  I think the author got a little carried away with the s's. While the titles go together well and sound cool, I really have no idea how the titles went with the books.

4. Have you read a book with a character that made you mad? 
Uh, yeah! Nearly every good villain makes the reader mad at some point in the book, but the villain that stands out is Skelley Chase from A Time to Die by Nadine Brandes. OH MY GOODNESS I JUST WANTED TO GIVE HIM A GOOD SCOLDING HE WAS SO INFURIATINGLY CONFIDENT!!

5. Is there someone or something from a book you would never want to come across? 
Well, at first I was like, SKELLEY AGAIN, but then I decided he's really not too scary or creepy, he's just INFURIATING!! So I settled on Lord Nathak from the Blood of Kings series by Jill Williamson. For those of you who haven't read them, basically he was struck by lightning which somehow made half of his body black and the other half is just normal. Kinda. So he wears a mask over half his face, and even the hair of his beard is divided into a black and white half. (Unless he braids his beard. Then the two colors are intertwined. Anyways...)

6. If you could meet a character in person from a book who would it be? 
I'm really not sure. Maybe Dill from To Kill a Mockingbird. He's just really funny and eccentric. Or possibly Curzon from Forge by Laurie Halse Anderson or Jace from The King's Scrolls by Jaye L. Knight.

7. What book are you currently reading? 
Let's see. The Bible, Joseph by Charles Swindoll, The Art and Craft of Writing Christian Fiction by Jeff Gerke, and Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee.

8. Have you read a book that made you cry?
Ooooohhhh we're gonna get personal, huh? Well, I don't cry, like, at all in books, or movies for that matter. However, there is ONE BOOK that has made me cry. It's The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton. AAAHHHH it was gut-wrenching. (However, in all fairness, it made my older sister WEEP, just to put things in perspective.)

9. What is the weirdest book you have read? 
Do short stories count? Because I had to study "The Masque of the Red Death" by Edgar Allen Poe in lit class, and let me tell you it was creeeeeeeeepy.
If short stories don't count, then probably Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry.

10. What is the worst book/series you ever read?
Weeeeellllll, there's a certain author *ahem* who has written a certain series that is very popular *ahem* about a spy dude named Alex *ahem, ahem*.  
I was literally like BRO, SHOW DON'T TELL!! It was one of those books that makes you feel good about your own writing. While I probably wouldn't say it's THE ABSOLUTE WORST book I've ever read, it's pretty low on my list.

However, I've also read Pride and Prejudice (yes, I know), and that one's pretty low on my list also.

11. If you could only read one more book the entire year what would it be?
The Bible, of course. ;)
But other than that I guess I would probably reread The Count of Monte Cristo or Les Miserables. That would keep me busy.

So there you have it!
And now for who I'm tagging:

Abi at The Left-Handed Typist
Ashley at Colorful, Creative Cards        
Aidan at The Story Forger
Alexandra at A Pen For the King
(not sure why those two last links aren't changing color... but they're links, so push 'em!)

Have fun! ;)
